  1. Greetings, Back in the day I installed TNG 8.0.2. Added some data. Then... things happened. And now I am trying to resume where I left. I would like to upgrade to the latest version. Site doesn't work any more, because machine now has PHP 7 only. So what's the smoothest way to go about upgrading while preserving my data. (I have backup.) Completely fresh install, db and all. And then restore backup. Have there been any breaking changes in the db schema, that will prevent a restore (mysqldump sql file)? Drop the new code, fix config, point to existing db. Perhaps manually run a db update scripts of sort. Nothing to worry about. Normal version 13 install, and it will figure what needs to be updated with the existing database. I tried to look for the above information here at the forum and on the wiki, but was unable to find anything of interest. Perhaps the download page for v13 may have that info, but I haven't paid yet. Cheers! tjk
  2. I searched to see if this question has been posted before but couldn't find it. I hope it's not a duplicate. I'm trying to install TNG13 on a second site on a shared hosting package. I'm not sure where to install TNG in the directory for the second site since I already have TNG installed in public_html for my main site. My second site shows up in my main director as a separate folder on the same directory level as my public_html folder. Can I just install TNG for the second time inside the folder for the second site? I have attached a screenshot of my directory as viewed in FileZilla. Second question -- I'm using the same database for both sites. Is it possible to set up TNG on both sites to access the same database so I only have to upload updates to the database once, rather than having to upload it twice, once for each site? My main site is https://rykbrown.net/ My first TNG install is https://rykbrown.net/TNG/index.php My second site is https://stewartsofbalquhidder.com/ Thanks for any assistance.
  3. I installed v.13.0.1 (update from 12x) and everything seems to work fine except when I go to mod manager where I get an Error 500 - internal server error. Is there anything I can do to recover from this? The site is: http://elizabethriemer.com/index.php Thank you for any help, Liz
  4. What is the best practice for multiple trees? In my view would different IP ports be a good solution. But is this possible? But what alternatives are there? Wim Dirks
  5. Hi, I need to add additional space between the header and subheader. The top part of the text and image are cut off by the header. I use Chrome, Firefox and Brave for my browsers and the page appears the same in all three browsers. Also, I am wondering what is the average cost of Google Map? .When I went to sign up for a key, it ask for my credit card information. I don't like surprises when my credit card arrives. My site will recieve fewer than one hundred visitors a month. Thank you, Ed Reeners
  6. Hi, Happy Holidays! I am totally confused and could use some advice on how to proceed. Part of my problem is the number of families that I want to set up on my website. I am not sure if what I am trying to accomplish can be done or I will need some custom programming. Tried different setups but have gotten lost with all the options. There is an over whelming amount of information on TNG. My programming skill are limited, I am an advanced beginner in HTML. PHP, I can copy, past and make minor modifications. Depending on the cost, I am willing to pay for the modifications. There are five families that I am trying to cover in the one website, and one GED file. The Renaud/Reeners - My 3rd great grandfather’s family to present The Racine family - My 3rd great grandmother’s family after she remarried after the death of my 3rd great grandfather. Knoebel Family – My mother’s paternal family Schmid Family – My mother’s maternal family Kraus – My paternal grandmother’s family. I have been able to add the names in the Home page header but have been only able to get the first two links to work. (See Header.png) On the Home page, can it be modified to add an additional four more features like Feature 1 to the page? (See Welcome.png) On the Template setup page, can it be modified for the additional four families. (See Template.png) My last change is on the Family Information page. When opening I prefer it to open to the Descendants tab instead of the Ancestors. Is this possible? (See Information.png) Thank You Ed Reeners
  7. Hi, I have started my TNG 13.02 installation. All of my media files are in specific folders. Example: Cemetery, Census, City Directory, Documents, Headstones, Military, Obituaries, Photos, Personal Profiles, Social Security, Travel, Vital Statistics Do I need to add these folders to the database tables? Thank you, Ed Reeners
  8. Hello. I'm trying to install the Ancestor Map MOD version onto a TNG website running 13.0.1 on a Digital Ocean droplet running NGINX. The cust_text.php files have read/write priviledges under each language. Any idea what I can do to finish up the installation?
  9. Hello Brett, My old mod was working correctly with TNG 12 and now TNG13.0.1. Yesterday, I installed a new mod still in beta test. And Hide_Admin_DNA was marked immediatly 'Cannot install", but it is still in workin order : Button and menu link to DNA are still hidden. So I made a new test : uninstall all mods. to check about a compliance problem. Hide-admin_DNA is still with a "cannot Install", but DNA Menu and button are still hidden in admin. Errors are below : I made a last test : I deleted the mod (via administration of course) : Hide_Admin_DNA is completely removed and DNA menu and buttons are hidden. Well, that's how I want it, but is there a ghost in my site ? What happened ? https://tng-test.revestou.fr/

    tng 13 Templates 19 & 20

    I've updated my 12.3 site to 13 but though templates 19 and 20 are listed, there are no images or way to install them. Haver I missed something?
  11. Hi, I have just installed TNG in a subfolder of my https://roots.fred-baltus.nl site. This site is protected with Let's Encrypt. When i go to https://roots.fred-baltus.nl/tng FitiFox give me a message that not the whole site is secure. (Mixed content blocking in Firefox) Does someone knows what i have to change somewhere in TNG? Thanks, Fred
  12. I'm running TNG13 on my own Ubuntu Server 20.01 LTS. On my home page I encourage users when Registering to only provide the mandatory information (username, password, email and real name) but most people seem happy to fill in address, phone number etc. as well. I'm uncomfortable storing this information and I don't need it. I generally only grant registration to family members in any case. I could just manually delete the information when granting access but would prefer they didn't provide it. Would it be possible to suppress showing the non-mandatory fields on the registration page? If anyone has a suggestion how to do that please let me know. I'm comfortable editing PHP though not very proficient. Thanks
  13. I had TNG installed and working properly on a Synology RS 815 NAS. But after a reset of the server, I can't get TNG reinstalled. The data base is still existent. PHP and html seem to work fine (e.g. on Mediawiki). When I try to install a new instance of TNG, I get Please wait, attempting to process.. on "Set permissions" followed by the message in annex. Does anyone know what might be the cause? "Set permissions" has no influence on the database or am I wrong?

    I have noticed that captcha is for fresh registration only. I would like to provide captcha as a requirement for all users login I am not sure which php need to be modified for this as I see the following php refers to login/out login.php admin_log.php loginlib.php Thanks Kris
  15. Hello, I upgraded from TNG12.3 to 13 and everything died. No pages loaded. I began digging into the code and rolled back begin.php to v. 12.3 and got most functionality working. Digging further, I found this line in the 13 version caused problems for my site: if(session_status() !== PHP_SESSION_ACTIVE) session_start(); It replaced the following line in previous versions: @session_start(); FWIW, my site's PHP version is 5.3.29. I don't see anyone else reporting this, so I don't know if this is a problem with the code or my installation. Gary

    Upgrade from 12.3 to V. 13 - Error in time setting

    Just want to let you know I solved this problem, which was obviously a part of mod settings. I had uninstalled the mods but didn't delete them, thought that wasn't necessary. But looks like deleting the mods after uninstalling did that. I'm good. Thanks for looking at my problem! After a smooth upgrade from version 12.3 to 13 (using template 12) on my website https://juergenamling.com/de I received the following error right above the menu line: Strict Standards: date(): We selected 'America/New_York' for 'EDT/-4.0/DST' instead in /homepages/22/d155018853/htdocs/de/genlib.php on line 653 When looking in the Setup/General Settings/Miscellaneous/ Server Time offset (hours) I see the following messages: Strict Standards: date(): We selected 'America/New_York' for 'EDT/-4.0/DST' instead in /homepages/22/d155018853/htdocs/de/admin_genconfig.php on line 1211Server time is Tue 11:06 amStrict Standards: date(): We selected 'America/New_York' for 'EDT/-4.0/DST' instead in /homepages/22/d155018853/htdocs/de/admin_genconfig.php on line 1211Strict Standards: date(): We selected 'America/New_York' for 'EDT/-4.0/DST' instead in /homepages/22/d155018853/htdocs/de/admin_genconfig.php on line 1211and site time is Tue 10:06 am My host is 1and1.com (IONOS) and I'm using PHP Version 7.4. I tried changing to V. 7.3 and 7.2 but still the same error messges. All Mods are uninstalled. And yes the database structure was updated. I'm using template 12, but same error in other templates (tried 13, 4) Anybody else having this problem? Or has a solution?

    Member sign in password

    The members select their own password and there is no password setting requirement. My members are insisting strong password requirement as they would be putting their family info. I need Capital+small+numbers+special charactors (@,#,%,&,) and minimum 6charactors. If members generating password does not meet the requirement, it should reject and give reasons. Is there any solutions in TNG ? Will appreciate feedback Thanks Kris
  18. I'm having trouble figuring out how to use the built in Mod Mangager in V 12 to install Simple SEO. I have already placed the mod in my Mod's folder and unzipped it. Now what do I do? I'm a Newbie and haven't figured this out. Thanks, Linda
  19. I'm new at TNG. I would like to add html pages I've previously created into TNG that will link to my featured articles on my TNG homepage. Is that possible and if so, what file/path do I ftp them into? Thank you! Linda

    can't install new version

    I have OSM V installed, and not one of the two mentioned incompatible mods. I uninstalled it (yes, I did NOT forget that) , and tried to install v12.3.0.6a. Got a message, that Installation could not be completed. Removing this new version, I could reinstall the former, so there is no rush. But what can be the cause?
  21. I'm a new TNG user. The software seems pretty well installed on my host server, but I'm having a problem with user logins. (Still in a testing/evaluation phase.) I've defined several users to test out access to branches. Each user is setup for access to one tree, and a "compound branch", i.e., a branch made my combining two other branches, and none (except myself) is set as an admin. They are "custom" users, with add, edit, but not delete priveleges. The problem I have is that when I log in as one of these test users, I seem to have some partial admin status. When I go to the dropdown menu (Template 12) of destination pages, Administration is one of the choices. If I select it, I am sent to the Admin home page, though I only have access to the top half of the admin pages, those pages that non-admins have access to. None of the admin-only pages, like settings, are available. Other clues: 1) The test users are set to have access only to one branch in one tree, but through search they can access all records (admin status), though they can't see birthdates on living people not in their branch (not admin status). 2) I installed the Regroup Person-Hide Branches mod. It seems to be installed with no problems. But branches are not hidden (admin status). 3) I have one test user set up for restricted access to a different tree that has no branches defined. When I log in as this user, Administration is no longer among the options on the drop down destination page menu. 4) To see if this might be some sort of stored cookie or cache issue that is holding on to an admin status I've logged in as test user on a device that I had not previously used with TNG, but I still get a "quasi-admin" status. I'm not very knowledgeable on the details of php, http, sql, or TNG, for that matter. I can read up on and make mods or add code if clearly directed, but I don't understand what might cause this problem. Any insights or suggestions? Thanks.
  22. Hi There, I had a running Webtrees 2.06 server but found it more oriented to research for genealogy than giving regular visitors a pleasant website. So I installed TNG 12.3 and imported the gedcom file. However I have no clue how to import and auto link the media files (pictures and pdf's ) to the data in TNG. I can upload them via a ftp client and can access the data base via phpMyAdmin Can somebody give me advise? Kind regards Guy Forssman
  23. So I found this Family Group Worksheet by Rick Bisbee on TNG Wiki. It says it is "standalone" and it appears MOD Manager is not required to install. I'm using Version 12 TNG and downloaded the correct FGW zip file (version, extracted the folder, uploaded it to my TNG folder on the server and attempted to navigate to the setup page. 1st attempt failed, throwing a 404 error. I next tried placing the folder inside the TNG Extensions folder and tried again but the result was the same with a 404 error. I've tried to use Rick's support mechanism but two tries there resulted in unable to deliver message. Has anybody used this with Version 12? Does anybody have any idea why I'm getting the page not found error? My apologies in advance if this is the wrong place to discuss an add-on. If it is, would someone direct me to the correct place please. Thanks, Larry
  24. Hello there ! After a few years away from using TNG, I want to get back to using it to share my project with family and friends. Since I have a new Windows 10 PC, I have to reinstall everything, but I had saved installation notes from a few years back, so I thought I was good to go. The plan is to install same as before : version 10 with XAMPP as a local server. - I downloaded TNG version 10.1.3 and XAMPP. Made sure that I have alle the rights to the folders where the software is installed. - I extracted TNG files and folders. - XAMPP installation went well, only had to modify Apache httpd.conf to select the TNG folder. Then I created a genealogy database in MySQL with UTF-8 collation. - I started XAMPP, opened a browser window, entered "localhost" and the TNG installation window appeared. - I chose Express Installation, Steps 1-2-3 went well - I changed the language setting to French UTF-8, clicked "save", and I got the message " Please wait, attempting to process... " and the installation hangs - If I don't change the language setting and try to establich the database connection, I get the same message. I can't figure out where the problem commes from. If someone can give me hints about what's going on, I would appreciate it. Thanks ! Luc
